Abstract

Ziel dieses Papers ist es, die derzeitige Diskussion bezueglich des sogenannten 'Merit-Order Effektes' der erneuerbaren Energien auf den Strompreis kritisch zu beleuchten. Veroeffentlichungen, welche diesen Effekt quantifizieren, weisen fuer die Jahre 2005 und 2006 einen Grosshandelsstrompreis senkenden Effekt der erneuerbaren Energien aus. Die dabei unterstellte Berechnungsmethodik geht jedoch von einem statischen Kraftwerkspark aus und abstrahiert von moeglichen Anpassungseffekten im Kraftwerkspark. In dem vorliegenden Paper wird gezeigt, dass diese Annahme zur Wirkungsanalyse der erneuerbaren Energien im Allgemeinen nicht geeignet ist. Vielmehr sind dynamische Anpassungseffekte insbesondere des konventionellen Kraftwerksparks zu beachten, welche den ausgewiesenen Effekt mindern. Mit Hilfe von Daten ueber Stilllegungen und Konservierungen konventioneller Kraftwerke kann gezeigt werden, dass in der Vergangenheit eine Reihe von Anpassungsoptionen zur Verfuegung standen, jedoch insgesamt eine belastbare Abschaetzung des 'Merit-Order Effektes' retrospektiv aufgrund der Vielzahl an Unsicherheiten nicht vorgenommen werden kann.
